>> i went oh, i can draw a picture of him. >> and that junior detective is being honored today, friday, october 16th, 2015. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. we're in the middle of a beautiful stretch of fall river here in the east. not so much out west. >> they have not been so lucky. these rains that seemed to come out of nowhere and really made a mess. >> that's right. it's our top story this morning. the wild weather that came in suddenly and virtually without warning. flash flooding triggering mudslides trapping drivers and then destroying homes. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer is in hard hit lake hughes, california. miguel, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning. the rain is gone, but mud certainly isn't. we're about an hour outside of los angeles, and take a look at this neighborhood. it was hit by a day luge.
7:02 am
the mud here is stacked four, five, six feet high in some places. just down the road from here, 20 kids were trapped at a nearby school. a good samaritan had to go in and save them. it was a wild day of extreme weather. it hit with fury, pounding rain, relentless marbleleized hail and then -- >> hopefully it stops. >> i know. >> reporter: the mudslide. one of california's busiest freeways covered in mud and brought to a standstill overnight, cars, semi trucks snaking down interstate 5 trapped in a gridlock nightmare. >> all the mud just came from right here and just wedged us in. >> reporter: mountains crumbled into pieces, pouring into streets, swallowing dozens of cars, destroying homes. witnesses could feel the power and hear the rumble. >> it was just like a freight train. >> reporter: in some spots the mud several feet deep.
7:03 am
the crippling flash flooding triggering at least four rescues. children pulled to safety. first responders ordered evacuations. no one hurt, but nearly everyone, especially drivers, caught by surprise. >> took about maybe 20 seconds, 30 seconds for all this to happen. it was very, very scary. >> reporter: nearly 6 inches of rain an hour hammered some neighborhoods. too much water too quickly for parched hills hardened by four years of drought. this powerful storm system, the most dangerous weather seen by some first responders here in decades. for now this vicious punch has passed, but this morning there is plenty of damage left behind. later today, we could get even more wet weather, but that heavy day luge is gone. police are still in this area doing door-to-door checks. matt and safe v.a., they say we could get more wild weather,
7:04 am
>> miguel almaguer, thanks very much. >> turn to al. what's next for these guys? >> got more. talked about this yesterday that we could be seeing flash flooding and north natalie that's what happened, heavy rain and the other mitigating factor is that this happened in right what is called the powerhouse burn area. this happened back in 2013. there was no vegetation along the hillsides to hold it in, and all that rain came in. today through saturday more pacific moisture coming in. flash flooding is likely, and now it's going to increase for arizona and nevada as well. as you can see, we have flash flood watches and warnings out now. this includes lancaster, california, las vegas, burbank maybe involved, rainfall rates, one to two inches per hour. heavy storms, gusty winds and small hail in southern arizona so we'll be watching this. we look for even more problems to remain. next half hour i'll tell you about what's expected with el nino, guys, and this could be the shape of things to come this winter there. >> all right, al. thank you very much.
7:05 am
new nbc news online poll conducted by survey monkey has just been released and focused on tuesday's democratic candidate debate and the crowded gop field. we've got several reports on this, but let's begin with nbc's national correspondent peter alexander and the results of this poll. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: nice to see both of you in person this morning, nice to see you as well. america has weighed in. it's good news for hillary clinton and also just this morning with the vice president closing in on a decision of his own, we're getting new signals from inside, from one of biden's closest advisers, that he not out of the race just yet. >> thank you, bernie. >> reporter: these days both hillary clinton and bernie sanders are smiling, but this morning it's clear clinton got the biggest bounce from this week's debate. an nbc news online poll conducted by survey monkey finds a majority of democrats say clinton won the night. while 45% of democrats and those who lean left say she will get their vote, 31% for sanders,
7:06 am
it's the vice president who is losing ground dropping five points from just a month ago. he's yet to make up his mind ignoring questions from nbc's kristen welker thursday. >> have you made your decision yet? >> i can't hear you. >> the have you made your decision yet? >> reporter: sources close to the vp tell nbc news he's calling allies in early voting states to gauge his chances and this morning nbc news has confirmed one of biden's closest advisers is alerting supporters by e-mail not to count the vp out. if he decides to run, it reads, we'll need each and every one of you yesterday. meanwhile, among republicans, ben carson claims closing the gap with donald trump, slicing trump's lead from 15 points 5 in the last month. also this morning, after a lot of back and forth you may have heard about between trump, carson and cnbc, our sister channel, over the format over the next gop debate scheduled to take place october 26th, later this month, just this morning trump tweeted out that both
7:07 am
sides have agreed that the debate will be two hours. that one of trump's demands. he said it was fantastic news for all, especially the millions of people who will be watching. we have reached out to our friends at cnbc. we have not heard back from them just yet. also overnight, and this is critical, we're learning how much each of these candidates has raised in the latest fund-raising quarter, the last three months. the campaigns out with their official numbers to the fec, federal election commission and here's what it looks like. on the democratic side hillary clinton took the lead with $29.9 million but vermont senator bernie sanders brought in a close second. he's just shy with 26 million. then let's flip sides and go to the republicans now. here's how the republicans' numbers stack up. ben carson, 20, nearly $11 million raised, jeb bush at 13 million air, lot less than in the early months and still significant. ted cruz, pulling in the lower tier outraising some competitors, and he came close to jeb with $12 million. carly fiorina at nearly 7 and
7:08 am
so the question you're likely asking is what's up with donald trump? how is he doing? well, he's self-financing, but he did report that he's raised close to $4 million, spent nearly $2 million of his own money during the entire campaign. matt and savannah. >> peter, thanks very much. >> a lot of numbers and what does it mean for the current state of the race? let's turn to john heilemann managing editor of bloomberg politics. good morning. >> hi. >> we talk about money and politics because it's a measure of the breadth of support, the depth of support. would you expect someone like ben carson and bernie sanders if i had told you six months ago they were going to have a haul like they just did in the third quarter? >> if you would have told me that six months ago i would have said you need to be committed to a mental institution and today seeing where they are you need to come with meet next time i'm in vegas because you would be a prophet. it's a real powerful sign of the extent to which in this year in a durabab wait outsiders are now playing the hot hands and the insiders are struggling. >> let's continue on that because if you look at these numbers trump and carson way
7:09 am
ahead of the rest of the pack. >> yeah. >> nobody expected that. everybody was talking about the summer fling, the flirtation, and when you look at the longer list here, john, and you look at some of the people that we all thought were going to be the strong contenders, jeb bush and chris christie and rand paul, and they are running on vapors. >> they are running on vaporses and not raising a lot of money. some are doing a little better than others, but it's still right now the thing that the republican party has always done which is to coronate -- not coronate but to declare we have an establishment favorite and that person is going to be the nominee, not happening in this cycle and people who have thought donald trump will collapse or ben carson will collapse, that this is a summer fling, as you put it, it's late october now. >> they are going through the stages of acceptance that this is the race that we have. >> this is the race. >> let's talk about the democrats. our survey monkey poll shows hillary clinton with a commanding lead, really opening it up between sanders and biden, not declared, but did not fare as well. ted kaufman, one of his closest
7:10 am
letter to biden alumni, as peter reported, basically hinting, you know, we still may get into this thing but has his moment passed? can he still get in? >> well, look, i've engaged in attempts to report on and read the mind of joe biden as much as anybody in the last few months. i'm done with that. the vice president is now -- if he's making a calculation on the political landscape, it's more forbidding now than it was a month ago. you've got hillary clinton performing well at this debate, the benghazi committee now delegitimized. she's keyed up to have a great day next week where it could have been a moment of peril, but i don't think that's how biden is thinking about this. he's not making political rational calculations. this is the last big political decision of his life and he's doing the ultimate gut check now and will decide on the basis of that. >> you mentioned the benghazi committee. stand by for one secretary because meanwhile hillary clinton's top aide huma abedin could face a tough line of questioning today when she goes before that house committee. nbc's kristen welker has more
7:11 am
from washington. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, that's right, good morning to you. usually it is secretary clinton under a microscope, but today her closest and longest serving aide huma abedin will be in the hot seat. she will testify behind closed doors before the congressional committee investigating the 2001 attack against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. abadin was clinton's deputy chief of staff at the state department and was considered campaign. led two are so close that clinton has referred to abedin as her daughter and this comes six days before the former secretary of state will give her own testimony. the campaign has gotten a bit of a lifeline as you guys talked about in recent days after the house majority leader suggest the the committee was aimed at dragging down clinton's poll numbers and after a former investigator with the committee suggest it had had turned into a political witch-hunt. chairman trey gowdy denies politics are involved, but the clinton campaign has used the allegations to try to discredit
7:12 am
the committee. clinton is hoping once she testifies next week she can turn the page on the questions about benghazi and maybe even her e-mails. matt, savannah. >> chris attorney welker, kristen, thank you very much. let me pick up where kristen left off. party of this commity's investigation we all learned about the e-mail problems for hillary clinton. bernie sanders says america is sick and tired of hearing about this. >> yeah. >> is he right or is there more there? >> well, look, it's unclear. in the end the fbi is investigating the server. there still could be legal and political jeopardy for hillary clinton. no doubt that in the democratic party people don't care very much about this. in the broader country hillary clinton's numbers on the questions of whether she's considered honest and trustworthy have been in a state of pretty serious decline for the last six months and it's hard not to think that the e-mail thing has something to do with that, so it's not a non-issue. certainly i think in the democratic primary not a big issue and bernie sanders when he says that, got a rousing cheer in that debate hall and probably around the country among hard core democrats. >> all right. >> john heilemann, good to get
7:13 am
>> just a reminder, holding a town hall meeting with donald trump and new hampshire voters, monday, october 26. can you see it right here on "today." switching topics, a major change is coming to the airline industry this weekend. that's when american airlines and u.s. airways will officially merge their reservation systems and the first few weeks might be confusing for some travelers. let's get to nbc's gabe gutierrez at atlanta's hartsfield dark jackson airport with more on what to expect. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. this airport will see its very last u.s. airways flight. it's been a wild decade for air travel. of the 11 top airlines back in 2004, only six are still around. the new american airlines will be 30% bigger, the largest airline in the world. this morning u.s. airways is preparing for its final flights amid some confusion. >> okay. we're supposed to fly american. when we get here and check in we're directed to u.s. airways over here. >> reporter: tomorrow it will
7:14 am
finally merge its reservation system with american's, but not everyone is on board yet. >> we were just like are we american or u.s. air? we didn't really know what we were supposed to be checking in on. >> reporter: two years ago airlines announced plans to join. american says since then it's been working towards tomorrow's transition, running 5 million mock reservations, testing more than 9,000 computers and kiosks and spending more than a million hours training employees all to make it a smooth takeoff. >> american actually has a system that's pretty easy to slide in the u.s. airways system. they have been actually doing a pretty good job of this for the last few years. >> reporter: airline mergers can be turbulent. in 2010 united and continental got together and the reservation system failed delaying flights and stranding passengers. >> hi. i'm oscar murngsz and i'm the new ceo of united. >> reporter: just last night united's new ceo acknowledged it's been a rocky marriage. >> we still haven't lived up to our promise or our potential. that's going to change. >> reporter: this weekend
7:15 am
american advises get your boarding pass online, have a printed copy of your ticket and get to the airport earlier than usual. >> what i hope for as a traveler is that the airlines will choose the best of each of them and create an airline that will be phenomenal. >> reporter: it will be at least another few months before the full u.s. airways sweep is painted with the american airlines logo but the last u.s. airways flight also the red eye from san francisco to philly. >> gabe gutierrez at the airport for us, thank you. another surge of violence in the middle east overnight and natalie has more on that. good morning. >> good morning, guys. big developments in the middle east surrounding that recent wave of violence between palestinians and israelis. overnight dozens of palestinians threw fire bombs at a jewish holty site known as joseph's tomb. it comes amid calls by hamas for another day of rage in the region. at least 39 people have been killed over the past two weeks.
7:16 am
also today israel is closing off jerusalem's most sensitive holy site the al-aqsa mosque to young muslim men in an effort to calm the violence. federal prosecutors have charged a man in malaysia with hacking a computer and providing information about u.s. service members to isis. police say the 20-year-old kosovo citizen hacked into a server based in the united states, stole personal information of more than 1,300 americans and then gave it to a senior islamic state leader in syria. prosecutors allege the goal was to provide isis supporters in the u.s. and elsewhere with the information so they could carry out terrorist attacks. the u.s. is now seeking to extradite the suspect. back here at home, texas forestry officials are bringing in a hovey bomber to fight a raging wildfire. it's now consumed six square miles and has burned nearly three dozen homes about 50 miles east of austin. about 400 homes have been evacuated so far. well, lots of new yorkers celebrating through the night after the mets series clinching
7:17 am
win over the l.a. dodgers. the game was tied 2-2 in the sixth inning when daniel murphy stepped up to the plate and did that, drove that solo home run into the seats into right field. that turned out to be the game-winner. the mets advance now to the national league championship series for the first time since 2006, and they, of course, taking on the chicago cubs. last time the cubs made it this far in the postseason, 2003. two teams, of course, very long draughts. game one tomorrow night. it's going to be a hot one right here in new york. lots to cheer about. well, an 11-year-old girl was honored thursday night for her stick figure sketch that led to the arrest of a serial burglar. rebecca depietro got a standing ovation at a ceremony stratford, connecticut, thursday night, but a few months ago there was a string burglaries on her street, including one at her house. so when police asked rebecca if she had seen anyone suspicious, she drew this sketch, and police matched it up to this man, pedro
7:18 am
bruno who has since confessed to ten burglaries, and perhaps rebecca has a future as a sketch artist. that was pretty good, i'll say. >> pretty good for her and for the police. >> yeah. >> matt, you look not so sure. >> maybe in the vicinity of the accuracy. >> the hair, and the facial hair. >> if it works, that's all that matters. >> get it up close, can you see it. >> by the way, natalie, going to be a hot one at the met game. going to be a cold game. >> going to be cold but a heated game, come on. >> that's right. thanks for helping her. let's show you -- here's why it's going to get so cold and not just in shea stadium -- shea city, citi field. yeah, i'm old school. i'm old school. we're talking 18 states with freeze warnings and watches, frost advisories and the jet stream has dipped to the south. look at these highs today. anywhere from 5 to 20 degrees below average. saturday even colder. look at what happens early sunday morning.

7:29 am
tours the brothel with two unidentified women. receipts provided by the love ranch management show his weekend began with a $75,000 swipe on his amex card. >> just keep a close eye on him and we do have help on the eye, okay. >> reporter: it comes as new video obtained by tmz sports shows first responders trying to save lamar odom, the nba champ who just a few years ago was at top of his game personally and professionally. sources close to odom tell our sister network e he remains on a ventilator and in a coma and the extend of his brain damage sun clear. this following what police believe was an accidental overdose on tuesday during his stay at the love ranch brothel. the kardashians have been in las vegas supporting lamar since the news broke. thursday all but lamar's estranged wife khloe were seen leaving on a private plane, and despite khloe remaining by his bedside social media has exploded with backlash towards her and her family.

7:31 am
advice about what to do next from friends and family. and, unfortunately, there is no improvement in lamar's condition to report, only uncertainty ahead. but what seems to remain constant is the outpouring of support for the former nba star fighting for his life now going on three days. guys, back to you. >> all right. jacob raskon, thanks very much. >> now to one of the top advisers behind donald trump his daughter ivanka. she's been his side for years but hasn't yet taken an active public role in his campaign. is that all about to change? nbc's katy tur has more on that. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. following donald trump on the campaign trail you quickly learn no one is telling him what to do, and even if they are he isn't listening, but there's one person who has got his ear and that's his daughter ivanka, smart, poised, successful and beautiful, she may be his biggest ally and asset. >> welcome, everybody. >> reporter: she's been called the quiet power behind the trump

7:34 am
last couple of days and i think she may be a little higher profile and she's, as you say, very impressive. >> impressive and a businesswoman in her own right and pregnant and with other kids and has other stuff going on, too. katy, thank you so much. >> mr. roker with the winter outlook. >> that's right. a shape of things to come. we've got a water spout off of lake michigan. this thing is pretty powerful. luckily it stayed offshore. had it come on shore this thing would have been a tornado. this is cold air filtering in. let's take a look from the national weather service the late on the 2015 outlook for the winter. pemp tour-wise, it's going to be warmest in the pacific northwest, but look at how the warm swath comes across the northeast. going to be chillier as you get down into texas and the southeast. and as far as fritschtation, it's looking the wettest as you get into northern parts of the plains, very wet through the south and into southern california and the southeast as well, and one of the other parts of this, a strong el nino.
7:35 am
very, very warm pacific ocean waters, and so we're looking for the threat of more heavy rain in parts of california. major rain starting in october, november. could see a very heavy one since the 1997-'98 el nino. san francisco as we will looking at a heavy el nino could. see what happened in '82-'83 when they got over 13 inches of rain and even snow, denver could see an increased amount of 20-plus inches of snow because they are four times more likely to have heavy snowfalls in

all right. we're back now. 7:45 with the hacking of america. if you haven't gotten one of the new debit or credit cards in the mail you'll be getting it soon. they have that security chip that's supposed to cut down on fraud. >> but the changeover is leading to some confusion. nbc's tom costello has more on what this means for you. tom, good morning. >> reporter: hi, guys. good morning. confusion on wall street. a chance you've gotten one of these new credit cards with a chip on it. you're supposed to dip it and insert it into the reader and not swipe it and a lot of retailers aren't ready to do it, and already there's a lot of pointing. they are here, whether you swipe, dip, punch in a p.i.n. or go without, the new credit cards embedded with a security chip are now hitting the cash
7:43 am
not exactly been a smooth rollout. >> we just got the new mastercard with the new little chip in it, and it was compromised. >> tried to slide it through and it didn't take. >> i didn't know why my credit card is going through, never been anything i've experienced. >> reporter: october 1st was the deadline for retailers to have the credit card readers in place most still don't and so far only 20% of consumers have actually received their new cards in the mail. >> any time that you're dealing with unhappy customers or forcing customers to take steps that they wouldn't normally have to do it's an issue that retailers are going to have to deal with. >> it's a lot to deal with. think about all the companies that automatically charge your credit card every month, newspapers, websites, gym memberships, kids' music classes, and it turns out a lot of the charges aren't going through because the old credit cards expire and customers aren't quick to update their billing information. netflix's stock dropped 82% and
7:44 am
blamed the new credit card switchover for slowing its growth. >> i don't think the banks and credit card companies are doing enough to educate the consumer. you get your new card and realize that there's a chip on it. you're not sure how that really works. it's sort of trial by error. >> reporter: what should you do when your new card arrives? first activate the card usually with a simple phone call and second provide your updated payment information to any of the companies that bill you regularly. sometimes the number doesn't change but the expiration date does. third, beware. scammers are sending e-mails asking for your credit card information. don't provide it. watch your bank statements for any charges that look suspicious. eventually you'll insert your new card into the reader rather than swipe it and the transaction may take a few seconds longer but security experts say it goes a long way towards protecting you. we've heard a lot of complaints from folks who say they have been told to swipe their cards, not insert them. it's happened to me. gone to the store and i said can i insert it the right way, no,
7:45 am
no, no, we're not ready for that. that should eventually change of the most. new cards don't require p.i.n. codes but target is adding p.i.n. codes to their cards. they were hit by that massive security breach a few years ago. >> tom, thank you very much. >> you bet. coming up, taylor swift opening up about who is behind her song "bad blood?" was it rival katy perry. what swift is saying. >> okay. coming up next, who do you think this baby, this baby right there looks like. tamron will have the hottest and off you go, and off you go, and off you go, for every step, every stride, every start, begin strong with the lasting energy of 100% whole grain quaker oats...

7:48 am
you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto . nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the right move for us.

7:57 am
some cars swallowed by mud. walls of mud flew into homes. fortunately, no serious injuries though the l.a. county fire department tells me there were at least four rescues. near i-5, the major artery was shut down for several hours. hundreds of motorists stranded as they watched the mud rise. there is a detour this morning as they try to clean it up. all across this area a big headache, a big mess and we could get more wet weather later on this afternoon. >> all right. not good news there. thanks. hillary clinton's getting a bounce from this week's democratic debate. in the new nbc news online poll conducted by survey monkey a majority of democrats said mrs. clinton won the debate, that poll now has her leading bernie sanders by 14 points, vice president joe biden yet to declare dropped five points, among the republicans ben car san narrowed his gap from 15 points to 5.

7:59 am
tide on sexual assault. erica hill has that story. >> good morning. it's called affirmative consent. the idea that a partner must give explicit permission before a sexual encounter can move forward and a mandatory lesson in health classes across california. the national conversation about consent is changing. the old no means no refrain of years past is being replaced in some cases by yes means yes. starting next year, california will become the first state to make lessons on affirmative consent a requirement in high school. >> what is your understanding of the law so far? >> students a it the urban school of san francisco are already taking the class. >> kids get it. kids understand. kids actually want to engage in healthy relationships, and a lot of them don't have adults in their lives talking to them about this. >> casey and larkin are students.
8:00 am
>> by asking for consent by looking for yes, you are showing that you care about what your partner's experiencing. >> having your partner ask you a question consistently, you are forced to kind of check in with yourself and say am i comfortable right now. >> the california law follows another one signed last year requiring the use of affirmative consent on college campuses in the state. new york passed a similar law governing campus this is year and other states are considering related measures. >> no means no is not enough. of course if you have a sex partner who says no to something you should stop. but it doesn't account for if your partner is frozen in fear or confused or checked out or drunk. >> a recent study suggests as many as one in five women is sexually assaulted or raped in college. numbers that brought a strong response from the white house. >> it's up to all of us to put an end to sexual assault. >> followed by powerful public service announcements. >> it's happening on college

campuses, at bars. >> critics of the yes means yes policy say it can oversimplify both the legal and the romantic ramifications of what happens between two people. neither of the california laws changes the way that rape or sexual assault are tried in criminal court. supporters hope that getting and giving clear consent will drastically cut down on the cases that need to be prosecuted. >> this is a fascinating article in the paper yesterday, do they come up with clear guidelines as to how often the question needs to be asked? >> talk about every ten minutes you need to check in and make sure okay, are we still good? we were talking, too, some of the language they come up with is awkward especially in your teen years. what do you say? one of the things they agreed on was, you good? more comfortable for them. >> than some of the other technical -- >> more awkward. >> an important conversation. absolutely. thank you.

8:57 am
so you can coax out great flavor effortlessly. hillshire farm. because it's worth doing right. when people say i'm lucky to have this hair color, i thank them. but then i really thank preference. to me, nothing compares to preference. l'oreal preference is luminous. fade-defying color that lasts. there's so many different subtleties to the tone... golden and warm and luminescent. that's what's so special about preference. luminous color isn't luck, it's preference. preference hair color by l'oreal. it's worth it. and so are you. l'oreal. hair colorist. paris you tuck here... you tuck there. if you're a toe tucker... because of toenail fungus, ask your doctor now about prescription kerydin. used daily, kerydin drops may kill the fungus at the site of infection and get to the root of your toe tucking. kerydin may cause irritation at the treated site. most common side effects include skin peeling... ...ingrown toenail, redness, itching, and swelling. tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you

[chuckles] he's supposed to pick one of us. this is a joke, right? that was the whole point of us being here. it's safe to say amy schumer
8:59 am
than a moment at this point. her movie "train wreck" was a blockbuster and won an emmy for the comedy central series she hosts and she just hosted "snl." tomorrow night she has her own hbo comedy standup special. >> and she faces the same issue many women face every day, confidence and dressing for success. >> she co-hosted a style empowerment workshop along with her "train wreck" stylist lisa peters. >> maria shriver caught up with them. >> standing up on the stage in front of people i can't perform my best or be qualify department if i'm not sure, pulling at something. i didn't know how to dress. sometimes i'm a size 6, sometimes i'm a size 12 so lisa giving me these tools and telling me how i can dress easily and comfortably and i don't even have to think about what i'm wearing. i don't think we need to be fashionistas and feel confident and good and feel like you have a cool outfit. >> this feeling of confidence
9:00 am
>> yes, absolutely. i was dressing in -- i was -- i was dressing really, really poorly, and i don't even mean financially. i would just be super comfortable and wear something out that's just kind of wanting to hide. that was me sending a message to myself that your -- your value lays other places and you don't have to worry about that and if people look and judge you for not dressing well, that's on them. >> why was it important to do this for goodwill and women who can't afford? >> goodwill has an incredible program where women are going through counseling and they themselves are ready to move out into the world with confidence, to get a great job and to succeed in life. >> lisa really just exposes me to the concept, the crazy concept what if you were comfortable in the skin that you're in.

9:02 am
women here and you're talking about empowerment and you're talking about it through fashion. >> mm-hmm. >> but really empowerment's got to be in here. >> i really want them to know, first of all, you're not alone and even someone who is successful and beautiful and like a model, they have the same moments that these women have and that anxiety, so they are in the alone. these are struggles everyone goes through. you're not bad or wrong. your body type isn't wrong. you just haven't been given these tools. on the internet people will write about me and they'll be like, she is the most disgusting creature i've ever seen, and then other people will say she's super hot, and they're both right. you're not going to be what everybody loves, but you have to love yourself. >> by the way, catch amy schumer coming up next, we're going happening in hollywood in "pop
